Q. I had severe leg cramps and read about putting a bar of soap under the sheet. I tried this and found it stopped them IMMEDIATELY. Even more astonishing, it also banished my intermittent erectile dysfunction.
I checked out the ingredients of Ivory soap and found it contains magnesium sulfate. Paramedics use this compound to treat heart attacks or asthma because it relaxes smooth muscle fibers found in blood vessels and airways. I wonder if magnesium is absorbed from the soap through the skin of the legs and feet, increasing blood flow. It works for me!
A. We’ve heard from many people who find soap under the bottom sheet helpful against leg cramps. We have no scientific explanation.
Yours is the first report on soap helping ED. We find it fascinating, but again, cannot explain it. Your magnesium theory is a stretch, though.
